If you want to spend half a day in a great part of Long Beach, then come on down. Blocks of shopping (retro/vintage, thrift), great restaurants and laid-back places to have a few drinks with the locals. Art du Vin is awesome for outdoor wine and hanging out, Lola's has great mexican food and outdoor dining -- it's just a... More

Browsing the shops and stalls gave me a feeling I was in a movie set working on a hippie scene. The crafts were of decent quality, very ethnic, though not to everyone's taste.

The downtown continues to evolve in a positive yet sort of patchwork fashion.Mixing Art and dining is a good idea. we long time locals especially like : District Wine, James Republic, Michael's Pizzeria,Beechwood BBQ& Brew.Blind Donkey "whisky bar"..these are fine establishments that cater to all demographic levels.

The shops are amazing and carry the coolest items. It's like Melrose in Hollywood, but without the crowds and it's close to the beach! This area sells amazing furniture and clothes and many of these items are sold to movies and television shows that feature the 1950s and the 1960s. Great restaurants and just a nice place to browse. I... More

Lots of shops to browse which made it a great place to take a break from business. Wish I had more time though.

The reason I love the East Village Arts District is proximity to just about anything I need, the unique stores in the area, the fabulous restaurants and bars (special props to Utopia, District Wine, the Green House and Asha) and the ambiance of the area. While I used to live in Belmont Shore and Belmont Heights, I'm loving being downtown... More

I stay here often, in the Courtyard Marriott. The neighborhood is coming up quickly. Many local one-of-a-kind restaurants, vintage clothing shops, craft boutiques. Monthly arts fair on a Saturday with dozens of booths and open-door restaurant specials.

Definitely the urban up-and-coming neighborhood in Long Beach. Lots of little shops and restaurants, and plenty of night spot gems. Oh, and of course Roscoes is in the East Village, so now you need no other reason to get on over there!

When I asked the front desk at the Renaissance hotel about the East village, they said it about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. There are unique clothing and second hand clothing shops here, such as Eleva8 and Brandon Apparel. These are interesting finds and they open after 10am. Eleva8 is thrift shop finds, scored some cool deals on... More
